I have a Helix Floor Special Edition Floor that I push into a PowerCab Plus. So far so good. It's a great rig for blues and Americana that I play.
With the Helix I really like the scribble strips and HX Edit, etc. i also use Helix Native extensively.
My "problem" is that I use one preset for just about everything - Alex Strabala Americana. The only thing I changed is replaced the chorus with a weeper wah (Moog Expression Pedal). Otherwise, it's POT and TS808 Overdrive; two levels of amp gain; two levels of tremolo; two levels of reverb; tap delay; into a Grammatico amp. The preset does use all of the switches. I love it.
I also should mention that I don't put the unit on the floor. I keep it at waist level with my PA mixer.
So I'm obviously not using the Helix to anywhere near its full extent.
I'm wondering if a HX Stomp would suit me better with a midi-controller. I would keep the Stomp at waist level with the midi controller and expression pedal on the floor. What midi controller is easiest to set up? Preferably with scribble strips.
Any thoughts will be greatly appreciated.
